The Market

The People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria is located between the Mediterranean sea and the Sahara in the west of the Arab world. With an area of ​​around 2.2 million square kilometers, Algeria is the largest country in Africa and around six times the size of Germany. With over 44 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous Arab country after Egypt and Sudan.

Algeria mainly imports food, machinery and chemical products and in return exports gas, petroleum and petroleum products. According to the Algerian Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, there was an increase in production of the following agricultural products in 2022:

  • Cereals: a production of 41 million quintals in the 2021/2022 season – an increase of +48% compared to the previous season
  • Pulses: a production of 1.2 million quintals – an increase of +20% compared to the previous season
  • Oils (edible oils and others): a production of 9.5 million quintals – an increase of +34% compared to 2021
  • Red meat: a production of 5.7 million quintals – an increase of +6% compared to 2021
  • Fresh milk: a production of 3.4 billion liters in 2022 – an increase of 2% compared to 2021

In addition, the total value of agricultural production in 2022 is 4.5 trillion DA, an increase of 31% compared to 2021 (3.5 trillion DA).

The risks associated with climate change in Algeria, such as insufficient rainfall, have a negative impact on economic growth and inflation. The Algerian government’s goal is to quickly modernize irrigation systems and further advance the grain sector. In 2021, the Ministry of Agriculture announced plans to expand Algeria’s wheat-growing area to 3.5 million hectares, while 1.8 million hectares of agricultural land were used for wheat cultivation. Smaller areas of land were devoted to other major agricultural products of the country, such as barley, potatoes, oats, dates and grapes.

The government is making great efforts to attract foreign and domestic investment to reduce the country’s dependence on imports. As part of its efforts to boost the agricultural sector, the government is offering tax incentives, including agricultural concessions, and free long-term leases of farmland to foreign investors.
